Editors' review

Facebook is an app that gives you full access to your Facebook account from your iPhone, making it possible to keep up with friends while you're on the go. You can do everything from adding photos to viewing status updates with this handy app, and you'll soon find it's an invaluable addition to your app library.

Pros

Fully functional: Whether you need to edit your profile or send your friend a birthday message, you can do it all quickly from this app. There's no part of your Facebook profile you can't access, including Privacy Settings and the Help Center.

Direct photo upload: When you have the Facebook app installed on your phone, you can upload photos directly to Facebook right from your camera or camera roll. You can also add a photo straight from your news feed screen by tapping the photo icon on the top toolbar and selecting a photo from your camera roll or taking a new one through the camera.

Game integration: If you play just about any type of games with your Facebook friends, you can download the apps for those games and connect them to Facebook via the Facebook app. Then you can continue games anytime, from anywhere.

Cons

Convoluted navigation: There are a ton of features available in this app, but it seems like there could be a better way to organize the navigation and controls. While you'll figure out pretty quickly how to find the things you use most, it can take some poking around to discover new features or access those that you don't use as much.

Bottom Line

Anyone who has a Facebook account will probably benefit from installing this app. It makes accessing your profile and keeping up with your friends convenient. While it may be a little complicated to access advanced features, most main options are readily available.

    "The worst iphone app ever."

    July 08, 2012   |   By julianbrown

    Version: Facebook 4.1

    Pros

    that it is deletable

    Cons

    Ive always regarded CNET as a reliable benchmark, here I cannot say I am impressed with your 5 star review of something that on my phone is actually unusable. I would say that the facebook app for the iphone is badly designed and confusing but I never really got that far, before i deleted it, it spent 99% of the time hanging or "updating". Google facebook app on the iphone 4s and you can see it is universal - so how can this not make it to your review?

    Summary

    I would expect Failbook wanted to integrate facebook into the whole iphone experience - instead i wont now use facebook on my iphone at all. For such a large company to make such a terrible app that I actually deleted it is beyond belief. Shame on CNET too for a 5 star review of a product that doesnt (on the iphone 4s) work at all.

    What is going on with Facebook this year, miss after miss after miss, changing everyones email addresses to their own poxy emial system, forcing timeline on everyone, a badly handled public float that further enraged people towards them and an app on the iphone that simply doesnt work. Facebook seem determined to crash into the iceberg at present.

    "Simply does not work"

    December 25, 2011   |   By mholliscnet

    Version: Facebook 4.0

    Pros

    Nice idea that we all hoped Facebook would do

    Cons

    First, I have the iPad I. I installed the app, then did the delete-reinstall routine that Facebook quixotically requires. Got the app working. And as soon as I am doing anything in the app, navigating, entering status, checking in, the application hangs.

    For Fcebook, Safari is much faster and much more able. Until or unless is application gets to the point where it can challenge Fascebook on Mobile Safari, it is a waste of space on the iPad.

    Summary

    Very nice idea in theory, but constant crashes make this a "no."

    Until or unless is application gets to the point where it can challenge Fascebook on Mobile Safari, it is a waste of space on the iPad.

    "Facebook love <3"

    December 12, 2011   |   By missdelaney2

    Version: Facebook 4.0

    Pros

    -Really cool design
    -Easy to follow friends
    -Lets me look at my FB whenever I want

    Cons

    -Photo viewing and chatting functions act funky sometimes

    Summary

    It's facebook for your iPhone. What can be better than that? Plus, it's free so you can't really complain. I'm so glad that they made an app for it. I can now check on my account whenever I want, which is both good and bad. (Bad because now I'm on it more than ever before). This app is perfect if you're an FB junkie. Just wish it wouldn't act so weird sometimes.

    "Useful facebook app, but needs to work on the bugs"

    December 12, 2011   |   By dirtyharrison84

    Version: Facebook 4.0

    Pros

    It's a good app to look at when you're on the go. Gives you easy access to your facebook account and has a sleek design.

    Cons

    There are some bugs that can get annoying. The chat/message system and photo viewing features can definitely be worked on. The app also crashes from time to time.

    "The app, while great, doesn't usually work"

    August 04, 2011   |   By pyrokitties

    Version: Facebook for iPhone 3.4

    Pros

    The app is well designed, the features included (other than chat) work wonderfully and the design is attractive

    Cons

    I have to launch the app six times in order for it to finally work (it crashes the other five). The chat and photos integrations are very buggy, along with most every other feature on the app

    Summary

    This app is beyond frustrating, but it beats the mobile site
